New Revlon Lip Butters for Spring 2013: Review + Swatches!

Revlon released four new shades in their Lip Butter collection this Spring, and while they have been tricky to track down, I found that Target is now carrying them in their permanent display along with the rest of the line.  I snagged three of the new shades and wanted to share them with you!

The three colors I purchased are Juicy Papaya, Sorbet, and Wild Watermelon.  I passed on the lightest color, Pink Lemonade, because these are quite sheer to begin with and I didn't think it would do much for my lips.  I was really excited to see Sorbet and Wild Watermelon especially... I am loving how bright they are!

The new colors have the same formulation and pigmentation as the rest of the line: moisturizing, a bit sheer, and fairly decent wear time.  I am a huge fan of the Revlon Lip Butters as everyday lip products because they are as easy to apply as a balm, look like a sheer lipstick, and are moisturizing.

Juicy Papaya, Sorbet, Wild Watermelon

Juicy Papaya is very "girl next door in cutoff jean shorts on a hot summer day."  It's effortless.  It gives the lips a subtle coral tint, makes them extra juicy, all while not being an obvious lip product.  I'll be wearing this in the summer when I'm going for that "no makeup" makeup look.

Sorbet is a bright, slightly deep pink.  It's a nice staple color that I think anyone could wear.  Not too bright, not too dark, not too warm, not too cool.


Wild Watermelon is a pink-toned red, and probably my favorite of the three.  I like that it is pigmented but a little sheer at the same time.  It makes your lips look like you just ate a cherry popsicle.  Perfect color for the 4th of July or a barbecue at the lake!

Like the rest of the Revlon Lip Butters, these come in color-coordinated plastic packaging with a quilted detail.

Overall, I give these two thumbs up!  The formulation is great and the colors are perfect for spring.  I found these at Target for $6.49 each, and good news, they are available online too!

What lip products have you been loving this Spring?
